The law society website has listings, but not recommendations.

Resolution has a comprehensive listing of family solicitors

Get a family law specialist, they will show the logo on their adverts and signs on offices etc. If you know anyone who has had a similar family type law problem ask for their views on their solicitor.

Not the same I know, but I used a solicitor for the selling of a flat after probate which got very complicated and stressful and although she was competent I felt totally unsupported. She did the bare minimum to help and was really cold.

On the other hand we are currently going through legal problems with a builder and we are using a solicitor my DH knows through work and he is the opposite. We really get the feeling he is on our side. It makes a huge difference when you can build some type of professional relationship with them and get a good vibe.

good question - no idea but hopefully somone else will and your solicitor definately will. One thing I have learnt is that if he gets a solicitor he or she will say more or less any accusation and/or untruth presented by your Ex regardless of veracity as if it is gospel. It is likely to make you really angry and upset but you have to distance yourself from it. It is hard but if you take it to heart the whole process is even worse.

Sounds like you are well rid! You just have to keep telling yourself that you know the truth and have the evidence to back it up. All he will have is angry accusations which will sound increasingly unlikely.

Your solicitor will be able to put into perspective for you as she will have dealt with his sort countless times.

Good luck!
